EUCLID, Ohio (AP) — A man accused of pelting his former neighbor’s Ohio home with eggs more than 100 times over a year has been sentenced to 18 months of probation and fined $1,000.
A six-month jail sentence was suspended Tuesday for 31-year-old Jason Kozan. He was sentenced less than a week after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of inducing panic. Vandalism and menacing charges were dropped.
Defense attorney Anthony Bondra said Tuesday there’s a great deal of evidence that would lead to a reasonable doubt that Kozan participated in egging the home of Albert Clemens Sr. in the Cleveland suburb of Euclid (YOO’-klid).
Clemens has said the egg attacks damaged his home and kept his family on edge.
Authorities haven’t said what motivated the attacks, which largely stopped after Kozan moved.
